The big talk right now is that of supply & demand shock. Jason walks us through the current market trends and the developments leading to the inevitable supply/demand shock. Simple at-home lab experiments, like watching the prices change in airline tickets help illustrate this shock at work.
Dan Amerman joins Jason in part II to discuss crisis investing. Dan, the author of Cycles of Crisis and the Containment of Crisis, takes us through his analysis of economic trends and changes due to coronavirus. As well, Dan advises on what we, the entrepreneur, should consider and how to take action, especially concerning advantages from understanding inflation.
